Hauptturnier literary controversy
A controversy has arisen at the Hauptturnier. It revolves around the meaning and usage of "Hauptturnier." An ex-participant in the tournament (who is well-versed in German) has informed me that Hauptturnier means "main tournament". This would put the championship itself in a subordinate position. My response was to point out that the great international tournament of New York, 1924 had a simultaneous Hauptturnier with players of lesser stature. This would seem to indicate that a Hauptturnier was a tournament held alongside a higher level invitational tournament. Would anyone be able to shed any light on this subject?
